Thanks, that was pretty much what I thought.

The group shot of the venoms is fantastic. You should be very proud of the army.

Here is a first rough mock-up of my first Talos.
The legs will have to be a little shorter to make it more of a "correct" size and I might add shoulders as well.
He will have dual wrist-mounted haywire launchers.





Also, the pose will be worked upon.

Tim Burton, where are you?

That looks awesome, and completely, utterly different to the bog-standard one. Bravo!

Looted Wraithlord? Me like dat.
It also may work for Cronos:


I wonder how You gonna attach it to base, IMHO plastic rod would look awful. Steel wire painted black?

How to build a Baron Sathonyx, the Speedfreek solution:




The Baron (who isn't completely painted yet) is made to look as the artwork in the book, but with a harlequinesque mask to fit my army.
The skyboard is made larger by using a Hellion-board but with the wings made larger by raider keel blades and hull blades.
His legs, arms and weapon are from regular hellions and just slightly repositioned.
The open left hand is from a raider driver.
His head is some random dark eldar head or perhaps from a Daemonette, but that isn't really important.
The flowing hair is made of the tail of a marauder horseman horse's tail.
The cape is from a High Elf Mage on horse, but put on with the inside out.
The magic part that pulls the whole conversion together is the torso from one of the Hig Elf Dragon's riders.

And there you go.
A Baron Sathonyx ready to hit and run you 'till you don't know what hit you...

I saw this and I flinched in amazement.

This is so freaking awesome I can not begin to even describe it.

I feel like I need a cigarette...

Wow, just wow that is probably if not difinatly my favorite Baron conversion and paint scheme I have seen. I really like the flowing hair, it makes him look very much like the artwork in the book.

The talos feels like one of the angels from Shaman King, or something similar...

Brilliant stuff!
I love the Baron. Is the mask sculpted?

And the chronos is just disturbing! Can't wait to see it done!

Yes the mask is sculpted, but based on top of a stamped mask from a metal harlequin.

And the Talos is a Talos...

Here is a picture of the Incubi in a better angle.


And Vect snuck himself in there as well...

I am interested as the Baron looks really good. But I would like to ask; what is the body part that you used for the Baron?

And where did you get those amazing cloth things coming out of the back of the Incubi's helmets? And are the torsi from Dark Elf Cold One Knights?

Brilliant stuff, by the way. Truly inspirational!

Two of the flowing textiles are from the arms of an Empire Wizard and two from the High Elf Mage of Island of Blood.
The last one is from a High Elf Noble I think. And yes, the torsos are from DE Knights.

If you look thirteen posts up on this same page, there is a description, and even links, to the parts.

Not sure how I'll paint Vect yet, so any ideas are good ideas...

Ha, great touch! Maybe some banners streaming from the tailfins?

Luv the Incubi, very nicely done.

Yes, I'm thinking to use the wide streamers from the Eldar Wraithlord, hanging straight back from the two small fins.

Also, I fixed the nose and some other minor errors...
